THANK YOU…From left to right, Scotch Plains residents Denise and Lou Laster meet with Congressman Mike Ferguson (LD-7) and staffer Roni Desmond at the Scotchwood Diner.

The property taxpayers are looking for answers to the problem of runaway increases. Policemen, firefighters, teachers and municipal employees are looking to be treated fairly in their contract negotiations. We believe the only way to achieve accountability and fairness along with achieving balanced priorities is to have all public employee contracts, including teachers, to be under the control of one entity. We suggest that this entity be the mayor and town council. - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
